Three Podcasts on Technology and Social Web
As many of you may know (but some may not!) in addition to writing Infinite Scroll I also host the Center for New Liberalism’s podcast. Over the past month, I’ve recorded a number of podcasts relevant to what we talk about here, and about the world of technology and social media. If you’re a podcast person, check them out!
Social Media in Chaos ft. Mike Masnick
I sat down with Mike Masnick, founder of Techdirt, to talk about why so many social media sites are engulfed in controversy right now. Mike’s an insightful guy and I always learn something when I chat with him.
I was invited on the ‘Free The Economy’ podcast as a guest to discuss my Ugh, Capitalism piece from a few weeks ago. We dive much deeper than the original piece does about the history of this kind of complaint and what it means in The Discourse.
Hollywood on Strike
To me, the conflict between studios and writers/actors can’t be separated from how technology has changed - particularly social video sites like YouTube, TikTok, etc. TV writer and WGA member Jeff Maurer chats with me about why the writers feel like they’re getting a raw deal and how AI and streaming tech factor into the strike.
